Almost twenty years of experience in editing manuscripts will benefit you greatly! If you want your work to be seriously considered by agents, editors, or publishers, it needs to be free of grammatical and mechanical errors. This is where Literally Precise can help you.
Do you want your website to showcase professionalism and accuracy? Do you want it to be easily navigated and understood? We offer services that will assist you in these areas and more. Let us give your website the help it needs to bring you the business you want.
Newsletters & Updates
Nothing seems to speak for you or your company more than a newsletter or update. Multiple errors can reflect poorly on you or your business. We can proofread or copyedit your communication to ensure that you are accurately represented. Because these documents tend to contain relatively small amounts of text, you can be correctly depicted at an affordable price.
Advertising errors don’t usually generate legitimate business. They may cause an increase in web or street traffic, but unless you’ve implemented an intentional mistake, that increased traffic won’t be reflected in monetary gain. A quick, professional review of advertising materials will help keep your company credibility in check.
If you want to ensure that your academic papers are free of errors, let us look at them. We offer services to check for correctness in grammar and mechanics as well as advice on how to make your paper more effective. Our experienced English Composition instructor can give your essay greater clarity and cohesion.
Resume and Curriculum Vitae
Having someone edit your resume or curriculum vitae is well worth the money spent. Research has shown that poorly written resumes are likely to be discarded. Make sure you aren’t disqualified for a job based on writing errors.
Invitations & Announcements
Most of us have been sent invitations or announcements that have mistakes in them. Unfortunately, this can cause the actual event to take a second seat, while the mistakes become the focus. Don’t let this happen to you! Save yourself stress, time, and money (reprinting can be expensive) by letting us check your document first.

Though the two are closely related, editing and proofreading are very different. Editing literally means to edit for publication. An editor pays close attention to the details of a project in order to make it ready for publication. Proofreading is performed on almost completed material with the intention of finding and marking errors. Perhaps an easier way of defining the difference between the two is to think of them as two different steps in the same process. An editor works on developing material in the early to middle stages, while a proofreader comes in at the final stage to ensure flawlessness.
I’ve read through my project multiple times, and it looks pretty good to me. Do I still need someone else to look at it?
Even professional editors should have their material read by someone other than themselves. It is virtually impossible to look at your own work objectively. You are likely to read what you intended to write, rather than what is actually written. Getting an outside perspective is critical to successful writing.
Literally Precise offers four different editing services. These services are determined by differing levels of document revision. To see the list of specifics offered in each level, see **page**.
To determine what level of editing is needed, submit a sample of your project. The sample will be reviewed, and you will be sent a recommendation of which service level would best suit your project. Once you have decided on a service and your desired completion time, an estimate will be sent to you.
The turnaround time for a project is dependent upon the type of document submitted and the urgency of its completion. Upon submitting a sample of your project, you will be sent an estimate of completion time. Rush projects will be charged an additional fee.
The privacy and confidentiality of your project is of utmost importance to us. We will not share your work, or portions of your work, with anyone outside of our company. Your business is no one else’s business.
